Life in Sleepy Village is very slow, and things haven't changed for a long, long time...until Big Nuisance comes to stay and starts a whole heap of trouble! Set in a small village in Japan, this is a funny and wicked fable by one of Australia's best-loved picture book artists. Children will love the annoying neighbour who comes to stay and causes havoc in the sleepy town, illustrated in a bold watercolour style similar to Junko's popular and award-winning picture book, THE TWO BULLIES.
Junko Morimoto was born in Hiroshima and came to live in Australia in 1982. She has written and illustrated many best-selling picture books including MY HIROSHIMA, THE INCH BOY, KOJURO AND THE BEAR (Winner CBC Best Picture Book 1987), THE TWO BULLIES (Winner CBC Best Picture Book 1998) and RUN DAMON, RUN! (with Anne Ingram).
